Jeremy Gloff''s SPIN GIRL SPIN found the artist in a very strange position. He had spent most of the 1990s self-releasing music on cassette He''d made a name for himself in the colorful underground scene in Western New York, but relocated in 1998 to Tampa Florida.
Gloff was to re-emerge in 2000 with this album. His first album to be released on CD. His first album to feature a live drummer and a full band. His first album to come out of Tampa.
It is obvious Gloff is doing his damnest to shake himself from the ghosts of his past. The tuneful quirkiness of his home-recorded releases is replaced with an almost anonymous indie-rock sound. People from inside the Gloff camp remember that he was very insecure about some negative reviews of his music that focused on this voice. Gloff responded by writing all these songs in a key that was almost TOO low for him to sing in...
But despite the transitional nature of this album, many of the songs are dark and haunting. It''s easy to get lost in the gorgeous wonder of "Infrawhite" or to feel the rage in "Johnny". You can hear a very disturbed person in these minor chord mini epics...
If you are looking for some intellectual moody music for a dark rainy night, perhaps you should check out Jeremy Gloff''s SPIN GIRL SPIN.

If you are looking for intelligent pop music, Jeremy Gloff is your man. Through fourteen albums, Gloff''s songs have mapped a musical and personal evolution. Honest. Edgy yet catchy. Unpretentious. Gloff''s a talented songsmith with a knack for super-introspective lyrics about relationships, sexuality, and self awareness. These hyper-personal musings are craftily paired with uber-catchy melodies, softening the blow of his sometimes shocking confessions.
If you are looking for someone to fill the void left by Elton John after the 1970s, Jeremy Gloff is also your man.
